FO - Traveling Woman Shawl
I started a teaching job in July, so I haven't had a lot of time to knit.

I finally managed to get this project finished.

This is the Traveling Woman Shawl, a free pattern available on Ravelry.

I think the name of this is fitting for this time in my life. I knit the bulk of it while on the road...first taking my daughter to college (I cried most of the way), and a month later to visit her and attend one of her soccer games. This shawl is well-traveled, that's for sure!

I used Ella Rae Lace Merino in color #103.




I ran out of yarn with two rows + the bind off, so I emailed a few people on Ravelry in the hopes that someone would be willing to part with their scraps. Several people responded in the affirmative, and within a few days, I had my yarn and was able to finish.

I used size 6 needles and wound up using the entire skein plus 15 grams. Yay!




On to the pictures (thanks for looking)!

Thanks, Jan! The yarn was very good to knit with! Merino is probably my favorite yarn...sooooo soft and divine!

Thanks, everyone!!!! I have to say that Ella Rae is some very fine yarn indeed! For lace yarn, it is a little thicker than one might expect. It's not too flimsy, so it holds up well to tinking.

As far as crying, I started before we even left the house!! I cried on and off the entire way down. It didn't matter if my daughter was in the car or not!! It totally broke my heart. I was fine after five days. I was fortunate in that I had just started my dream job, so I've been very distracted.
